now, in high definition, this is your news 13 skywatch forecast. folks. the majority of us were quiet in the overnight hours, we are already starting to see snow carolina.
but this is very light for the moment. and we are not anticipating too much in terms of impact. or too much in terms of accumulation. the way. and it's going to be right in the spots where it's already seen, right along the north carolina and tennessee border for those in swain county, we are talking the smokies and the northern mountains. those will be the topic of conversation for the next few days. but the rest of us in north carolina, not out of the discussion. we are looking at a dusting and there is a winter storm or rather winter storm watch in effect for the majority of the region and a warning for
burke county, that will be in place 6:00 this evening and going through monday so this storm is certainly something we will be tackwill be tracking and it i think it has big implications but we will show you how when and where it is playing out. we are starting to see the show showers today but i think the system is just isn't coming as of yet. we will see more on the way as we head into monday morning. what happens sunday evening going into tomorrow morning's commute? we will see a shift in our wind. you are seeing that now coming almost even due south for those in western north carolina. that's going to have a big impact on what type of precipitation we are talking about, because that's going to facilitate warmer temperatures transitioning it from snow, which is what we have seen in the early morning hours, this is 6 a.m. into rain, very quickly. now, i do think that this model is somewhat overselling some of the rain showers, which seem to continue until tuesday morning. so, this is what i think is going to be tracked. we are certainly going to be seeing some soft know in the highest elevations as the
ice is a bigger problem for those east of i-26 and i think it will be pushing off to the east. so we will see a rain and snow mix, but watch what happens as the low moves through. we are going to warm the temperatures back up, above the freezing point, by a few degrees. tomorrow's afternoon high into the mid 30s fart majority of the region. but as the low sweeps on through and becomes a little bit further to the coast we will see the snow and rain mix, once again. the brunt of the moisture content is already off to the east, but i do think sleet and possibly even freezing rain could be seen for a commute in the afternoon hours on monday. so what are we talking about in terms of accumulation for show showers? now, this one model is still anticipating the higher elevations getting the majority of it. but i think it's underselling some of the lower elevations. 1-2" is possible for most of the region and possibly 2-3, maybe even upwards of 4, maybe even upwards of 6 as we make our way into the higher elevations and especially the regions that are in the storm warning. it's something we are certainly going to be monitoring. afternoon highs today, staying below the freezing point for western north carolina. closer to the 40 degrees mark
slowly rising our temperatures back up, the brunt of the storm monday and tuesday, lingering show showers on wednesday morning, but take a look at thursday and friday. no issues there. we are back in sunshine, upper 50s and low 60s for the afternoon highs. >>evan: a man with a unique talent next in our "carolina moment."

>>zack: another chilly start to the day, yes, cloud cover overhead and show showers in some portions of western north carolina but you see the winds. they are calm. so it may feel relatively warmer but also look at the wind direction. we are seeing it from the south. that is going to have a big implication on the upcoming winter storm that we are seeing. now, we are mixing in sunshine and blue sky, not as much as we saw yesterday, and we will start to see some of those rain and snow showers moving in, even as early as this evening. now, it's more so for the higher elevations but by monday it will be a rain and snow mixture. turning even into sleet and freezing rain as we head into the evening hours on monday. accumulation going to be varying across the mountains, but the majority of the region can expect a few inches over the 48 hour period. >> >>evan: 7:256789 welcome back to the "carolina kitchen" with the chefs of chupacabra latin cafe in the reynolds village. we started out with enchiladas and then the chang bowl with the

>> and we cured the pork belly in house for three days, and then slow roasted it overnight. >>evan: wow. >> i think traditionally it's with pork or pork or beef? >> i think it's either or. i think you can choose between the two. >> we did pork. >>evan: yeah, me, too. north carolina, you have to make it with the pig. >> exactly. and then we just, you know, i take that same chang aoli we used in the chang bowl because it's a nice screamy sweetness to it. got a little drizzle like that. and then, just a little bit of fresca and cilantro. that's our own little -- >> we have a special in the restaurant, we will have it all next week. there you go. >>evan: speaking of specials at the restaurant, how did the cam burrito go? is it popular? >> it was really popular and we changed the name and put it on the menu. >>evan: cool! what is it now? >> the asheville breakfast. >>evan: okay. i like that. all right. sounds good. make sure you get out to chupacabra and taste this

greenville last night. the debate began with a ent no of silence for justice scalia, but the somber atmosphere was short lived following questions about who should appoint a successor and when, the debate turned ugly with questions regarding foreign policy. >> if you listen to him and listen to some of the folks that i have been listening to, that's why we have been in the middle east for 15 years. >> while donald trump was building a reality t.v. show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe. and i'm i'm proud of what he did. evan: ted cruz once again turned against donald trump. right now he and senators cruz and rubio are topping the polls in the palmetto state. it's possible the debate in greenville could shake up the order. fore complete election coverage head to wlos.com and we have an election 2016 and the latest from the campaign trail and we will have a live interview in a moment with unwith of our

>> now, in high definition, this is your news 13 skywatch forecast. >>zack: good sunday morning, folks. now, we are seeing show showers, already pop up for those in western north carolina. but, these are light at the moment and really not a whole lot in terms of impact or accumulation. but we will zoom this in for you now and show you again at the higher elevation, more on the great smokies, the northern mountains, as we broaden this out for you, there is certainly more on the way. we will see the canadian air mass continue to dive in, so some chilly temperatures on the way but low pressure that will monday. if you step out the door, put on the heavier coat. our temperatures are even into the teens and low 20s. and there is going to be a winter weather watch and warning put into effect this evening. now, for those further northeast, yancey, mitchell, avery, mcdowell, as well as burke, you are in the pink section, which is the winter
this is a little more intense. we will start to see showers in the late evening, and we will already starting to see accumulation in the overnight hours. and all of these warnings and watches are going to remain in effect through the day on monday. so let's put this into motion for you now and show where everything is happening now. for the majority of the valentine's day it's cloud cover, i think much of us will remain dry, even though there is a few spotty show showers, but by tomorrow morning, take a look at what happens. one, we will start to see the winds shifting a little bit. that will play a big role as we head throughout the course of the day because it's snow to start, and then this one model is transitioning it to rain quickly and that seems to dominate as we make our way into tuesday. now, i think there is a bit of a difference in what i'm forecasting versus the model. i agree it's snow to start and then it is going to transition to rain as we start to see this low come right across our region, our temperatures are going to be warming up just slightly above our freezing point, maybe 34-35 degrees for our afternoon highs. but as the low continues to
are going to bring back that snow and i don't think it's going to be rain that dominates. it's probably going to be a mixture of the two. so, we will have sleet, possibly freezing rain for the commute on monday morning. something certainly we will be monitoring that will have big implications for the afternoon hours tomorrow. what are we talking about in terms of accumulation? this one model is forecasting about an inch in most locations, maybe slightly higher as you make your way into higher elevations. out towards swain county. out towards the northern mountains and i agree with that still but i do think localized spots could possibly see 2-3" while some of the valleys are mostly going to be at the 1-2" range. again we will see how this plays out in the next 24-48 hours. but, on top of that, the rain could be melting some of the snow at times. so, maybe not seeing a whole lot of accumulation at one time but over the 48 hour period is when you will get some of the numbers and we will see what happensz we make our way into tuesday. forecasted high, staying below the freezing point for those in western north carolina. closer to the 40 degrees mark
a little warmup as we make our way into monday and tuesday, but that's the brunt of the system and then take a look at wednesday thru friday. we will certainly warm things up and you can dry things out, upper 50s and low 60s by the end of the week. >> >>luke: the christ school basketball team beat asheville christian academy 72-53. the greens win the c. a. a. conference championship and they were unbeaten in conference play in the regular season. will fleming and christian nichols scored 17 points apiece for christ school. meanwhile the 3a western regional reference championships at north henderson, pick it up at the 196-pound class, we get a win and scores 28 points for the black hawks, simvich finishes first in his weight class, later chance from inca make as great move and a quick pin on his opponent, nine different rest

runs on dunkin'. >>evan: welcome back, to rejoin us on the gop debate is chris kipry yeahty, the professor of political science at warren wilson college. thank you for joining us. who won the debate last night? >> i don't think there is a clear-cut winner, what you can say most is there was not a big loser and particularly marco rubio, after coming after the
hampshire and what that cost him in the new hampshire primary, i think he was trying to get his feet again and i think he accomplished that. >>evan: contentious moments throughout the debate, some between ted cruz and dickerson, the moderator, we talked about. but a lot between jeb bush and trump, and even cruz and rubio, did that help any candidates? >> i don't think it helped them at awvment it didn't hurt them, but you know really what rubio and kasich and bush are trying to sort of get themselves as the position of the establishment candidate and ted cruz and trump are setting themselves up as the outsider so when jeb bush goes after trump and cruz going after rubio, they don't gain ground on each other. >>evan: interesting. are you surprised donald trump is the leading candidate at this point in the race? >> yes, i am surprised. everything i have been taught and everything i have studied has told me that he is the kind of candidate that would not do well. i predicted months ago he would fall away quickly.
be the nominee. but, you know, as time goes on, i'm getting less and less confident in that prediction. we will see. it's early. we have only had the very earliest primaries, really they start piling up in march 1st and 15th so we will have a much better picture after that, if he is really a viable candidate for the nominee for the republican party. >>evan: how you think last night's debate was in greenville right here in our backyard, how you think it affected or will affect south carolina's gop primary which comes up judgement six days from now? >> i actually don't think this debate really moves the needle for anybody. i think, you know, like i said before. rubio made sure he sort of stopped the bleeding on his candidacy and we will see how it works out. i mean, really, trump is likely to win. cruz is likely to get second and the other candidates are battling for who can get the closest to third. and they are trying to stay alive for the next primaries coming up. so really i don't think the debate, you know, helped anybody or hurt anybody dramatically.
up, including north carolina on march 15th. i was reading that four of the ten most louse most populous states are having primary, ohio and illinois, so a big date coming up for us march 15th. but it's going to be affected by this redistricting battle. how do you see this playing out? >> well, i think that the redistricting battle, it's unclear. if you were to ask me on friday, what would i think would happen, i would say the supreme court would basically grant the stay that the state requested and the current district boundaries would have been the ones we have been working under for this election. but since antonin scalia passed away yesterday it's going to be, you know, now the supreme court is a 4-4 court and there is a chance that the liberal justices will sort of say to north carolina you have to horary up and get the districts, the new districts working, the district redrawn. so,. >>evan: what happens if they are deadlocked? >> then what happens is the lower court ruling stands and the lower court ruling was that
boundaries for the election. and so either they have to change the boundaries before the march 15th election or they have to postpone that primary election for at least for those districts. and so it can create quite a mess. >>evan: fascinating. a lot of stuff going on in this presidential race. and yesterday's death of antonin scalia will play a huge role. thanks for joining us. >> thank you i drive a golf ball. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto . xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin,
xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may crease your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring
treatment with xarelto was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . nearly the end of the show, let's take a look at the top local headlines. we have an update on an armed robbery at a store in canton last month. we have learned two buncombe county men have been arrested, russ lynn thompson is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and goodsen with aiding and abetting an armed robbery. it happened at galloway's country store on january 15th. you can see in the surveillance video a masked man holding a gun to the man's head as he empties the register, another man fills pockets with items from underneath the counter just behind him.
held in the haywood county jail. fletcher police need your help identifying suspects related to car break-ins, the picture is here. police say they use stolen credit cards as businesses in henderson and southern buncombe county, they were traveling in a truck, similar to the one you have seen on the screen there. if you have any information call the fletcher police department. one woman experienced the icy roads, she is okay but drove her vehicle into a fence and nearly hit a telephone pole. she said another people helped her including neighbors and a toe trunk driver as well as members of the fire department. >> let's look at events happening across the mountains, add some whimsy to your valentine's day with asheville community theater theater seussikal, it

my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so finally, i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your dermatologist about humira. because with humira clearer skin is possible.
